Whether you’re new to psychological type or a lifelong fan, the BAPT conference is a great place to discuss ideas and broaden your knowledge.
For the 30th anniversary of the conference, the theme is “Pearls of Wisdom” and it promises to have an extra special touch to it.
We will be holding a stand where you can come to discuss your challenges and look through our resources, including our latest report into the hot topics in the HR world: ‘People first for organizational fitness’.
What motivates you? Type, popularized by the MBTI®, describes many of the positive motivators that drive our careers, relationships, and passions. However, we develop other habits of mind, known as “saboteurs,” to meet our needs for independence, acceptance and security. Doing this can make us our own worst enemies. Add stress to the mix and the results aren’t pretty. And what happens when people with different “saboteurs” interact? Along the way, we can set off other people, especially when at odds with each other. Working with the vocabulary of the saboteurs framework adds richness to our understanding of how type opposites clash when they see the world differently, and practical pathways to more productive encounters. In this workshop, you will:
- Work with a new tool, the Saboteur Assessment, developed by Shirzad Chamine, chairman of The Coaches Training Institute—a tool participants can use with clients
- Discuss Jane and Ann Holm’s research on the connections between type preferences and saboteurs
- Through large and small-group exercises, as well as individual reflection, apply learning about saboteurs to your relationships and your personal effectiveness
- Bolster your Sage—your ability to grow from the inevitable periods of stress that life brings
- Explore how to blend learning about type and saboteurs for coaching and for team effectiveness.
